And your last entry:

So you used phrases like "further investigation", "require me to hack the
qt build", and "something to look at" and you mention changesets that
were made prior to 0.19 like you're saying it was broken just before
the release.  You never really say anything like "I recompiled and it
works now."

Maybe I didn't read into it enough.  Anyway, glad it's working for you now.
